Here is the summary:
Kindle for iOS 3.6 is now available in the Apple App Store. New features include:
* Multicolor Highlights - Four color choices make it easier to distinguish important passages. * Book End Actions - Just finish your book? Share the accomplishment with friends on Facebook and Twitter. Rate and write your own review.* Brightness Control - the brightness setting will now be saved across device sleeps.
I am excited about multicolor highlights. Everyone on forum seems to love the brightness settings. Okay, whatevs. Book end actions are also cool, and could be a great teaching tool. Students can color code their notes. Just imagine: Blue=symbolism, Yellow=poetic device, Pink=connection, etc.
I took some screen shots of what it looks like on the iPhone.
|A page of Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card, with some previous highlights at the top and bottom. Yellow was the only available color previously.|
|I highlighted a passage and then tapped the highlight and the little menu popped up.|
But, what about Kindle for PC app? Is it going to get the multi-colored highlights? When can I label my notes and be able to search or group my notes? I checked it out and here is what I saw:
No pink highlight! Maybe there is an update coming? I will investigate and get back to you.
